DUI Victim

Powerful Advocacy for Over 15 Years in the Greater Seattle Area

Lynnwood DUI Victim Attorney

While we all know that drinking and driving is a dangerous practice that everyone should actively avoid, some motorists continue to get behind the wheel while under the influence of alcohol. And these motorists make our roads more dangerous for all of us. If an impaired driver leaves you injured, call an experienced Lynnwood, Washington, DUI accident attorney today.

The Statistics

The statistics related to driving while under the influence of alcohol – as forwarded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) – are stark, including:

  • In the United States, about 30 people die every day in accidents caused by drunk drivers, which translates to one death every 50 minutes or so.
  • More than 10,000 people lose their lives to drunk drivers every year. In 2018 alone, there were 10,511 drunk-driving-related deaths.
  • The most recent data regarding the overall financial cost associated with drunk driving is $44 billion in 2010 alone.
  • In 2018, a full 29 percent of all traffic deaths were the result of drunk driving.

These statistics paint a grim picture of exactly how dangerous driving under the influence of alcohol is.

Alcohol’s Effects on Drivers

Alcohol has all of the following effects:

  • A reduction in the brain’s functioning
  • Impaired thinking
  • A reduction in one’s ability to reason
  • Decreased muscle coordination

Each of these represents a serious danger when the person who is experiencing it is behind the wheel of a car. As the level of alcohol in a motorist’s system increases, so too do the deleterious effects.

Possible Damages

Drunk drivers are far more likely to cause serious car crashes, and the resulting damages tend to be quite extensive. If you’ve been injured by a driver who is under the influence of alcohol, you can expect to experience physical, financial, and emotional losses.

Medical Expenses

Your medical costs might begin with emergency care at the scene and extend to all of the following:

  • Emergency transportation from the scene
  • Surgery and follow-up care
  • Treatment from doctors, specialists, and therapists
  • Ongoing care for any secondary health concerns that arise
  • Prescription medications
  • Physical therapy
  • Rehabilitation
  • Adaptive physical devices
Lost Wages

Being seriously injured by a drunk driver will very likely translate to lost earnings due to lost hours on the job. If your injuries are especially serious or lead to secondary health issues, you could be facing a lifetime of decreased earning potential, which translates to significant financial losses.

Physical and Emotional Pain and Suffering

The pain and suffering you endure as a result of being injured by someone else’s negligence can be as damaging as it is difficult to overcome. These non-economic damages are very real and should not be overlooked or minimized in your accident claim.

The extraordinary personal attention that the attorneys gave to every detail was beyond my expectation. I was contacted often and explained what was being done and why. The settlement outcome was fantastic.

It was great hearing from multiple people in the firm, believe I talked to both partners during the process. Never found myself waiting for any information, got updates when I wanted them.

Everyone was so great at answering all my questions & guiding me through the process.

Thank you so much!
